Confront the war within, to survive the war without.

History would never forget the 18th of the Aster’s Gloom of the year 2030.

Twenty-three years after the fall of the Ayvartan Empire and the rise of the Socialist Dominances of Solstice, the great southern continent once more found itself at war. From far overseas, the Nocht Federation, the Kingdom of Lubon and the Empire of Hanwa declared war on the burgeoning Ayvartan nation, hoping to stifle its revolutionary ideals and restore what they see as its legitimate government. They prepared to do whatever it took to tear down the red flag flying over the ancient fortress city of Solstice.

To secure the gains of their revolution, the Ayvartans struggle to reorganize themselves for a total war that will drag the entire world into its bloodshed and madness. Unprepared, and overwhelmed, the communists must deal with the war within their own nation and their own hearts and minds, if they are to survive the war for the course of history itself.

      1. I just wanted to say how much I love this serial. I read it first when I was a teenager and it made a significant impact on me but I managed to totally forget the name and how to access it. Now, 6 or 7 years later,as an adult queer Marxist I’m overjoyed to find it again. My joy is not in the least bit dampened by the indefinite hiatus – sometimes art is left unfinished and that doesn’t have to diminish the impact and value it has. I’ll definitely be reading Unjust Depths after I’m through rereading this. Thank you for sharing your work with the world.

      2. Jane, I really want to thank you for this comment. I truly appreciate it. It is truly a kindness from you to me that you not only enjoy my work but are understanding when I moved on from it. I do hope you will enjoy Unjust Depths. It is different, but has a lot of the DNA, and I am very proud of it!

  1. Excellent. Although I feel like there is a little to much romance you know it draws out and makes the story a little plain and cliches!
